Denture Repairs in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire
Emergency Denture/False Teeth Repairs are £55
Using a Home Denture Repair Glue - WARNING
Many dentures that we repair come to us either super glued together or repaired using a home repair kit bought from the shops. PLEASE do not repair your denture in either of these ways. The joint of the 2 broken halves of your denture are critical, putting glue or home repair material over this joint WILL damage your dentures. The result is that when they break again, which they almost certainly will, we are not able to accurately locate the 2 halves back together meaning you end up with a denture that doesn't fit very well OR you end up having to go to a dentist for a new denture...
When we repair your denture we also use a special machine (called a Pressure Hydro Bath) to put the plastic under pressure while it sets, this ensures the repair is strong and free of micro bubbles - if you repair your denture at home with a home repair kit is unlikely you'll have a pressure hydro bath!
All in all, trying to repair your dentures at home can ultimately work out a rather expensive exercise!
How do we fix broken or cracked dentures?
We fix fractured dentures in our laboratory in Potters Bar, Herts by carefully removing the damaged plastic either side of the break or crack. Once we have exposed fresh and clean plastic (known as acrylic) we can bond new acrylic to this. We then flow in brand new acrylic in to the crack or break - this new acrylic chemically bonds to both halves and chemically welds your broken or cracked denture back together again.
Once your dentures have been chemically welded back together they will be as strong as they were when they were new, the crack or fracture line WILL NOT be a weak area as the 2 halves will have been chemically bonded and fused together, this simply isn't possible using a home repair kit or other form of DIY denture repair... you really do need to have your dentures professionally repaired.
If your denture is broken in half then you need to get it fixed soon, even if your denture has just cracked and not completely broken in half we recommend you visit us soon as you never know when your denture will totally break.

Why should I trust you to fix my dentures?
This is a great question, and one that you must feel has been answered fully before taking your dentures for repair. Our laboratory was first set up in 1946 by E W Sharp, it was then handed on to 3 partners (Don Stocking, Tony Beer and Robin Oborn - these are the 'SBO' founders) who handed the company on again to the new Directors, Mark Oborn (son of Robin Oborn) and Keith Shrubb.
During these years, materials and techniques have changed and the best have been handed on to the new owners each time. So with a laboratory that has been in existence for over 50 years and with the added experience that the current directors bring you can be assured of the best quality denture repairs in Potters Bar and Hertfordshire.
We also used to be located right in the heart of the medical/dental centre of London around Harley Street, we moved to Potters Bar in 2009 and so bring with us the knowledge and experience gained by working alongside some of the best dentists in the world.
